I'm not sure if you forgot but I already responded to your concern/comments regarding "why increase the bit depth" but here it is again.
"Your thinking is the generally accepted thought, and one I believed for sometime too. However, I found that by increasing the word length from 16 to 24 bits seemed to relax the overall sound of the recording. The instruments seemed just a bit more organic. On paper, the math and science would disagree but extended listening sessions have swayed me to converting all my past 16 bit masters to 24 bit. Maybe it is an interaction between the D to A converter reading the word length as 24 bit rather than 16 bit, I’m not sure. However, to my ears it sounds a bit better.
Anyway, it certainly does not damage the sound and will be how all my 16 bit recordings are made available. I recorded them, I feel they sound better at 24 bits and that’s how I want others to receive them."
So there you have it again. Please don't make this a repetative dialog. I hope that in spite of your concerns you enjoy the recordings. Tim is assisting me in a very big project and there will be much more to come.

Why change the bit rate on a 16bit dat? It doesn't add anything.
